Hello My 62 plate Mondeo front sidelights do not work on

Resolved Question:

Hello
My 62 plate Mondeo front sidelights do not work on sidelight switch or dipped beam switch but they do work on main beam. I have tried to change the bulbs (just in case) but have failed to remove the old bulb from the holder to insert the new bulb.
Any help would be appreciated on these 2 items.
Many Thanks

Hi there Ian good evening to you

Registration is CV62 DVY.

Rear sidelights work and all other lamps are working correctly except the front sidelights.

Thanks

Hi there Ian I was just double checking your set up
Ok as you have daytime running lamps you don't have side light bulbs fitted to the front of the vehicle
If you look at the head light there is 2 silver bullet type shapes where the side lights would be on a conventional headlight these are basically dummy holders
If you start the car up with light switch at postion 0 the dipped beam comes on constantly (this is your daytime running lamps )
I have had many many customers coming back saying the exact same thing that the front side lights don't work
This is because they have been deleted on vehicles with halogen headlights with daytime running lamps
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Ian please let me know
